Have you ever walked into a bar and seen these signs that say,
“You don’t have to be mad to work here but it helps”
and then you’re greeted by the dullest, mind-numbingly boring bar staff? Here in Club Malfi madness is an essential requirement.
“Whether we fall by ambition, blood or lust,
Like diamonds we are cut with our own dust”
Directed by Valerie Greene and written collaboratively by several society members.
Inspired by John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi (1614) this production re-imagines Webster’s macabre revenge tragedy, placing the action in a rundown, late-night, cabaret club where the owner, the Duchess is planning her escape from her corrupt brothers Cardinal and Ferdinand. The audience will follow the various characters’ stories of love, deception and murder over the course of one night.
The action is spread over two floors and six rooms including an intimate black-box theatre space. The audience will be led by club bouncers to various locations but are welcome to explore the scenes in the Club as they so desire.*
